Trees on Cars DIY Christmas Shadow Box

This DIY Christmas shadow box is a fun and festive way to decorate! It incorporates one of the season’s most popular trends: trees on cars. 

This DIY Christmas shadow box is a fun take on the festive snow globe trend! It incorporates one of the season's most popular trends: trees on cars. Snow globes are always so festive at Christmastime, so I thought I’d try taking the same idea a bit bigger with a shadow box. I also incorporated one of the season’s most popular trends: Christmas trees on cars.

The result is a fun little decor item . . . a DIY Christmas shadow box . . . and it’ll only take a few minutes to make! I love that this decoration goes with a variety of decor: modern, farmhouse, rustic, and more.

You can also get a lot of these supplies from the dollar store, making this craft an inexpensive way to decorate for the holidays.
